Granite Falls Historical Museum

The Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society Secretary and conference volunteer, Michele Cozad, tells us about one of the vendors that will be at the Northwest Genealogy Conference…

The “Midsummer Night Encounter” was held at this great local museum Saturday night July 16th. If you have ever been interested in local railroads and logging operations this “Little Museum that Could” is a must see! There was a great Washington Wine and cheese/fruit tasting event before the winners of the Silent Auction were announced. SVGS members Dee Saunders walked away with a movie gift box and Michele Cozad received a 2 night family get-away package to the Ocean. Look for the Granite Falls Historical Museum as a vendor at the Northwest Genealogy Conference, August 17th-20th. They will have their great “Snohomish County Map Overlay Program” running non-stop at their table. This software program (in the SVGS Library – Snohomish County #36) is a wonderful account of our county that begins around 1910 – homestead property lines, railroad spur lines, roads, water markers – lakes, creeks, etc – all displayed in an “overlay” format. It’s amazing – stop by their table and check it out!
